Amazon Android App Store coming to 200 countries including India

Amazon has announced that they would expand their App Store for Android to more than 200 countries including India, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, Papua New Guinea, Vatican City and more.
Amazon is asking the international developers to submit their apps through theAmazon Mobile App Distribution Portal, and these apps would be available when the Amazon App Store for Android launches internationally. The Amazon app store for Android was first launched in the U.S back in 2011. The Android app was updated to support ICS devices back in January 2012. It rolled out in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan recently.
Some of the app publishers including P2 Games, Mobile Deluxe and Playmous in UK says that sales and monetization rates are better in Amazon compared to non-Amazon stores. Amazon app store has in-app purchases, and Imangi Studios, creator of the popular Temple Run games says that they have seen higher customer engagement with Temple Run since the integration of in-app purchases.
You can download the Amazon Mobile app for Android, but it works only in select countries. Amazon launched the Amazon Mobile for Android Tablets earlier this week for U.S customers. We are not sure when we can the expansion would happen.
